RuPaul on Perez and CBB: 'I don't like rewarding bad behaviour'

2015-02-06
RuPaul has admitted he stopped watching Celebrity Big Brother after Perez Hilton re-entered the house after living in a separate room as part of a secret task. Speaking exclusively to attitude.co.uk, the Drag Race star admitted that although he'd known the notorious gossip blogger "for years", he didn't like "rewarding people for bad behaviour". rupaul-drag-race Asked what he'd made of this year's CBB - which saw Hilton narrowly missed out on a place in tonight's final after being evicted from the house on Wednesday night (February 4) - the 54-year-old said: "I love [the show], although I did stop watching it once they allowed Perez to come back into the house. I thought that was total bullshit. "You know, I’ve known him for years. And it’s like I said, I just stopped watching it because I think it’s was pretty foul for [the producers to do that]. "They obviously did it for ratings, and I thought, ‘You know what, I’m done. I’m done.’ And it worked, and that’s great, but I don’t like rewarding people for bad behaviour." Of friend and fellow Drag Race judge Michelle Visage - who labelled Hilton "an embarrassment" to the gay community during their time together in the house - RuPaul said: "Of course I hope she wins! I think she’s done very well in there, I really do. "I’d never seen it before; this is the first time I’ve watched it, but I’ve really loved a lot of the people in there. Obviously I’ve read about Katie H before, before I’ve seen her on the show, but on the show I fell in love with, she’s fantastic." After dividing viewers and likening his experience on the show to being "diagnosed with AIDs in the early '80s", Hilton has previously been labelled a "a knob" by Alan Carr and "a poor excuse for a human being" by former Welsh rugby international star Gareth Thomas. Meanwhile, the seventh season of RuPaul's Drag Race is set to hit US screens on March 2 on Logo TV, and will feature appearances from guest judges including Ariana Grande, Mel B, Kathy Griffin, Demi Lovato, Olivia Newton-John, Alyssa Milano, Jordin Sparks, Kat Dennings and John Waters.
